IF THE HORSE IS DEAD DISMOUNT!


This is an old saying, which means, “if what you are using is not moving…dismount.” Sometimes even the best laid, thought out & mind mapped ideas and systems just don’t work! They simply don’t produce the results we need. So what do you do…? What do you do…?

Keep doing it, because if we stop, we will feel like a failure.
Keep doing it, because if we stop, those involved will be hurt.
Keep doing it, because if we stop, people will get mad and leave.
Keep doing it, because if we stop, the “others” still doing it will get mad.
Keep doing it, because if we stop, we look stupid, no back up plan!
STOP doing it, because if we STOP, we might actually find something that works.
Your answer to that question, may very well determine your impact and fruitfulness.

Time to evaluate EVERYTHING! Put it all on the table, no sacred cows allowed to stay! All on the table for honest prayerful evaluation. And if you find (and you know you will) something that is dead and not producing what will you do? What will you do?
